for conservatives to start by confronting the fact that the 2012 election was a historic victory for the american left. probably the greatest since 1936. unlike 92, 96 or 2008, at the democratic national ticket did little to anything to obscure the nature and content of its agenda. it would be oath -- surprising if the obama did not view this as europeanizing the government. using judges and regulators to impose its will on subjects ranging from same-sex marriage in all 50 states to green curbing of the upsurge of fossil fuels through such methods as hydraulic fracturing. for darker the galling is the defeat of every republican challenger for the u.s. senate coupled with a democratic victory in 25 out of a possible 33 races. hanging on to the house by a slightly reduced margin will be a slightly reduced margin for those of us to vote for repeal of obama care and entitlement reform. republicans have now lost four out of the past six presidential elections, and five of the past six in terms of the popular vote. this followed three landslide victories in the era of ronald reagan that dominated the p

through a disappointing election and they have also seen that there are things they can get done that they feel perhaps they were not able to do in the middle of a debt crisis negotiation and all of the short-term continuing resolutions. so, the tone in the house, i would not be surprised if it ratchets down a teeny little bit because people with a little bit experience, a few more gray hairs, the maybe willing to take the long view on things. >> i am told yesterday the speaker had a conference call with all the members returning, and new members, and try to talk a little the realpolitik with them, and if they wanted to get off to a good start in dealing with the president next year they need to tamp down some of the most conservative aspirations and team building, and many to realize -- what i thought was interesting as i was told he said they needed to come up with 218 votes for whatever they wanted to do, on their own, and not count the democrats to give them any help. that is of course a fundamental shift in stated policy from john boehner's predecessor, dennis hastert, whose

commentary you -- either in the debates in the campaign or even in some of the discussions about the post-election foreign policy priority but it needs to be a priority for several reasons. iraq is a success. it is because of the efforts of the united states and our allies and iraqi people. it is an important success because it is right in the middle of the middle east. it ties into every other problem from iran to sunni-shia relation and energy. it is a democratic state with a lot of flaws. it is a functioning democracy and that is a good day and we need to do our best to continue to encourage. the administration is putting a lot of quiet effort into this and this needs to continue. there are several serious risks. the biggest is that syria will pull iraq asunder as the various groups go in various directions. so far, that has not happened but the longer the situation in syria is allowed to continue, the more likely that very bad scenario will occur. one of the main reasons we kept our troops in iraq and lost 4500 tubes was to maintain the unity of iraq. that depends on plurality and democracy. t
